Some of the biggest questions that have been asked since Swift was announced are around how Apple are going to make a more Swifty interface to the Cocoa APIs. Well, this week, Apple published a post on the Swift blog which covers some proposed changes to make a more Swifty Cocoa API. If you want more detail than is in the post, you can also view the three proposals on Swift Evolution (1, 2, 3).

I think It's really unlikely that we'll see any kind of pure Swift implementation of UIKit (at least UIKit as we know it today) and so making it nicer to work with from Swift is really important.

The proposals have been around for quite a while now and today is the end of the review period. I'm looking forward to seeing the results and how this improves how we get apps written in Swift.
